TEMPLETON - The 5th annual Templeton Wine Festival, hosted by the Templeton Chamber of Commerce, is set to return Saturday, May 6. Held at Templeton Park, located at 550 Crocker St., from 1 to 5 p.m., the festival is one of the area’s biggest celebrations and has become a weekend vacation destination for people from both near and far.
What makes a good festival, you ask? A great selection of drinks and food, of course, but also a great location.
Starting the first weekend of May, local wine enthusiasts are invited to enjoy a pre-summer soaked weekend in one of the state’s most scenic towns.
At this year’s wine festival guests will have the opportunity to thoroughly explore the Central Coast’s cultural horizons. The event has been expanded to include not only an exceptional collection of Central coast wineries, but also an eclectic selection of local food samples and culinary delights, boutique shopping booths and vendors, and also a live musical performance by artist Joy Bonner.
Admission to the event will cost $35 for pre-sale tickets and $45 when purchased at the door.
Guests are encouraged to return to Templeton Park the following day, from 1 to 5 p.m. again, to continue their weekend fun — this time at the Templeton Beer Festival.
Although hops and craft beers started off as a small industry, the two are quickly making a name for themselves, especially here along the Central Coast.
Produced by the Rotary Club of Templeton and Hole Hop Productions, this event will feature beer selections from several local breweries and taprooms.
Given the Central coast’s combination of award winning wineries and breweries, these two festivals are some you sure won’t want to miss.
